Book Review: The Soldier's Guide by the Department of the Army

The Soldier's Guide (published by Skyhorse Publishing) is a compilation of numerous Army regulations and manuals. LTC Charles C. Hagemeister (retired) compiled this edition of the manual and injects his own insight and numerous inspirational stories into the text to put a human aspect to what can be dry material.

The British Medical Journal has released new findings on getting and staying hydrated during these summer months. Among their new findings:

  • Prehydrate: While it may sound like a good idea, but there is little evidence to show that it does much more than give you an uncomfortable stomach full of water splashing around. It could also lead to over-hydration, which can be just as serious as being under-hydrated.
